A Healthy CollaborationSM

Disclaimers

PrescribaRxSM is a Medicare-approved Prescription Drug Plan offered through American Progressive Life & Health Insurance Company of New York and Pennsylvania Life Insurance Company, members of the Universal American family of companies. PrescribaRx contracts with the Federal government.

Potential for Contract Termination In the unlikely event your Plan Sponsor leaves the Medicare program, or no longer offers prescription drug coverage in the service area where you live, we will notify you in writing.

If this happens, your membership in PrescribaRx will end, and you will need to enroll in another Medicare Prescription Drug Plan to continue your prescription drug coverage. All of the benefits and rules of PrescribaRx would continue until the effective date your membership in PrescribaRx ends. You also would continue to receive your prescription drugs in the usual way through PrescribaRx’s network pharmacies.

If PrescribaRx leaves the Medicare program or your service area, you would need to select another plan. Your choices would include joining another Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) or a Medicare Advantage Plan with prescription drug coverage (MAPD), if these plans are available in your area and are accepting new members. As soon as PrescribaRx has notified you in writing that we are leaving the Medicare program or the area where you live, you may enroll in another plan.

The Plan Sponsor is contracted with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the government agency that runs Medicare. This contract is subject to renewal each year. However, the Plan Sponsor or CMS can decide to end the contract at any time. You will generally be notified 90 days in advance if this situation occurs. However, your advance notice may be as little as 30 days or fewer if CMS must end the contract in the middle of the year.

Enrollment Limitations

Members may enroll only during specific times of the year. Contact PrescribaRx 1-800-765-4576 (TTY for the hearing impaired: 1-800-777-9083) 8 a.m to 8 p.m, every day to obtain more information.
